This regal bracelet takes its inspiration from an ancient Roman coin called an aureus, which was minted during the reign of the emperor Antonius Pius (ruled A.D. 138-161). The coin shows on the obverse a draped bust of his wife, the empress Faustina, whose death and deification in A.D. 141 the coin commemorates. The gold aureus became a regular part of Roman coinage in the time of Julius Caesar (49-44 B.C.), and he was the first Roman to mint coins bearing his own portrait. After the emperor Augustus (ruled 27 B.C.-A.D. 14) received authority to issue coinage, Roman coins became inextricably linked with the emperor's sovereignty; coins from the imperial mints bearing portraits of the ruling emperor and his family served to circulate the ruler's image throughout the empire.
